Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run about in all day so that they can use up all that pent-up energy. Nonetheless, there are other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have enough time or energy to play with your doggie for several hours a day, then there are specific breeds perfect for your way of life.
Here are some dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be rather aloof, but their independent nature means it will not mind when you commit for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make fantastic snuggle friends.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and partner, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines at its original job. The breed is gentle, caring and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy pet dogs that are soft and tender towards their families. Although they require little exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus usually tend to not be especially fond of going outside. Many times, they will get plenty of exercise simply walking the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight commonly maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are restricted to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are quite less active. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
